VALENTINO: XTina Abroad; Stefani & Child Stateside
arlier this week, Christina Aguilera was photographed in the United Kingdom, where her European tour will kick off in mid-November.
She and her husband, Jordan Something, were captured leaving London's private members' club, Home House. Though her luggage and trucker hat (really, Christina? Trucker hat?) were Louis Vuitton, her shades were all Valentino. See below.

Earlier this month, I was perplexed by Gwen Stefani's flashy gold sunglasses that she was photographed wearing on several occasions. Were they a prototype of her own design? (L.A.M.B.'s website currently does not offer any sunglasses.) Did she pick up a rare vinage pair with her Don't Speak royalties a decade ago?
But, then it struck me: I had seen those jeweled arms before! The answer had been on my own site this whole time! Blast!
